Storm blew one of mine over and broke it. What steps do take to save it. I guess I will need to clean cut the end correct?
Thanks!

From my side take and make a fresh cut so its not jagged. you can take any pieces cut them and dip in rooting hormone and let callous for about a week. you can plant them for new plants. make sure they are in well draining soil.


you have any pictures of size others can help with suggestions

I'll take a pic tomorrow. That answers my question. First one I've had to "break" on me and forgot what I needed to do.
Thanks!

A lot of people on the Face book plumeria page has been using liquid electrical tape to seal the Stump or the part that is still the tree. i have used this and have had great results but it is not necessary for sure it a newer concept im getting 3-5 new branches with it and 2-3 with out it.

There is a yellow plumeria that I've talked about here, it is on the lot of an empty house next to a pharmacy I use. I was there today and walked over to look - and smell. There were several long branches in the grass next to it and I grabbed one and pulled hoping it was broken off the tree. It was still connected but growing along the ground. I pulled a little harder Whistling and it broke off. So, I have that yellow I've been wanting with the powerful scent. I've got about a 3' section about 3in in diameter laying under the bananas in the back. It branches at the other end and has new leaves growing. Can I just stick it in some dirt? That's what I've done with the other ones I have but now I'm thinking perhaps I should let it callous first? Does that mean out of the sun and out of the rain?

A stick that big is probably fine to root without callousing.
Yay for you for getting it!! Hurray!

Cool! I'll plant it today then. I will try and get a pick of the blooms on the mother plant and see if you recognize it Hetty. It has several branches growing flat along the ground and then turning up 3 or 4 feet away from the main plant. The main plant is mid sized, not a big tree. It doesn't get any care, but it is blooming away and the smell is delicious.
